August Favourites!

I know I say this in almost every single blog post I write recently, but seriously, where is the time going? Another favourites post means the end of another month, but I am so excited for September; it is my birthday month, after all! And I have so much planned; a trip to Oxford Street with my fiance, Frankie and Bennies with friends and family, a wedding fair! I'm hoping to get our wedding venue booked this month too, as we're shooting for a September 2017 wedding! And I'll be publishing my first wedding post in September, so keep an eye out for that. Today is all about my August favourites, though, and there are quite a few things I've been loving this month. Let's dive right in!

Obviously! I finally got the chance to read Harry Potter and The Cursed Child this month, and I loved it. I  went into it with zero expectations (well, as much as you can do; there was a lot of hype around this book) and did not expect another J.K. Rowling; so I wasn't disappointed. 

Short term loans

Money isn't something I usually talk about on my blog, and I don't know why. Probably because, I'm pretty useless with it! Five years ago, I was a student at university, digging myself deeper and deeper into debt because I could. Student loans, overdrafts and credit cards. It was all there for the taking, and I took it. Five years later, I'm a soon-to-be married woman, with bills to pay and all that debt waiting to be repaid. My advice? Don't get into debt...

Meet the advertiser...Things Sarah Loves!

I'm so lucky to have an advertiser who is not only a lovely lady and an awesome blogger, but who is also one of my best friends. It's funny to think that it is blogging that brought Sarah into my life, and a year(ish) later we're the best of friends. It makes me so happy, then, to share a little bit about Sarah and her blog, Things Sarah Loves, with you today! I thought I'd let Sarah take over this post, so here she is...!

I like cake* || With Caketoppers

You know how I said I'm not a food blogger? Well, it turns out, I just might be. It's hard not to be a food blogger when you really effing love food. It probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram; I'm forever sharing photos of my pizza/roast/chocolate stash. The list goes on. Because there isn't really any one food I favour above the others. I love all food equally. Except for cake. Cakes goes straight to the top of the list, as far as I'm concerned. Banana bread (is that even cake? IDC, I love it!), fruit cake, chocolate cake, toffee cake, cupcakes. I love them all. I have a real sweet tooth, see.

Meet the advertiser...The Lilac Linnet!

Happy Monday! Or not because Monday, right? But I'm happy, because after a few days off, I'm finally back to my regular blogging schedule. And today I'm coming atcha with a post all about one of my lovely adveritsers; Llinos of The Lilac Linnet.
So, instead of babbling on about Llinos, and her blog, myself, I thought I'd ask her a few questions so that you, and I, could learn more about the lady and her blog, in her own words! Let's jump right in with the first question...

Purrfect Post!* || With PetShop

There's something Harley loves even more than lounging around in the sun and scratches behind his ears. Something that he can really get his teeth into...

And that something is food. I'm sure it won't surprise any of you, but Harley really bloody loves food. And when he gets a parcel delivered just for him with lots of food and treats inside. Well, that really is the purrfect post for him!

Brown paper packages tied up with string* || With The Willoughby Book Club

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I love books. So when The Willoughby Book Club offered me the chance to review their book subscription service, I didn't even have to think about it!

Whilst I waited for my book to arrive through the letterbox (and I didn't have to wait long!) I did some research, visiting their website and having a click around to find out more about the company and how their subscription service works. And here's what I found out. TWBC offers a variety of book club packages, from picture books for babies and children, to books for young adults, budding chefs, couples and more. Once you've chosen your package, you'll be asked a few questions about your reading preferences and interests, and each month you'll receive a new book, handpicked to suit your individual tastes! It couldn't be more straightforward, right?
